    • Where to stay?

      Varenna Apr 9, 2014 at 12:17 AM

      Initially looked at Como. Having second thoughts. We have 4 nights (minus jet lag only 3 days to explore.) We are considering Varenna.
      We would be catching a train from Malpensa directly to Como/Varenna after a long haul from Australia. What are the pros/cons of choosing Varenna?
      A major "thing to do is" the Berlina Express for one day.
      Advice welcomed. Any advice.

    • MXP to Rail station - Timing? Reservations?

      Milan Mar 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

      Is there any advantage / disadvantage to making train reservations?

      Our flight from JFK is scheduled to arrive on a Friday before 7:00am. Our plan is to take the Express Train to Centralle station for the 2.5 hour trip to Venice. It would SEEM that the 9:35am departure from Milano would be reasonable goal, no?

      If we get to the station early, would we be able to swap our tickets for an earlier departure?
      In the more likely scenario, if our flight is delayed - and we miss the 9:35am departure, are our tickets worthless, or able to be used - without penalty on a later departure?

      We are travelling in a group of 6 and would like to rent a van from Milan International Airport and drive straight to Lake Maggiore in view of our luggage. We plan to stay in Lake Maggiore and use it as a base to go around. May I ask if this is a good way to go or is it unwise to drive a van in view of the narrow roads which is common in many European cities. Appreciate any comments and/or suggestions. Many thanks, Kathy from Hong Kong.

      what is actually in those Isole Borromee - can we just stroll and wander around streets - without entering the palaces and the gardens?
      or the only thing you can do on those Isoles is to enter the palaces and the gardens?

    • By Train or Car from Venice to Cannero Riveria etc

      by jombay Online Now Jul 18, 2005 at 12:37 PM

      I am going on my honeymoon flying into Venice and then onto Lake Maggiore, Cannero Riveria. Anyway,we usually always hire a car but would like a break from this if possible and see some of the country side by train (and also being on honeymoon, we could do without the falling outs that come with the territory of driving and map reading in a strange country. I have tried to work out the trains and then buses and it looks simple but thought I'd ask if anyone has actually attempted this journey by public transport. We are flying back out of Bergamo Airport. If anyone has any suggestions of an easier destination to follow Venice which may be easier, feel free to add. Would have liked Bellagio but looks a nightmare to get to by train.
      Many thanks
